Now Offering Placenta Tinctures!

In addition to turning your placenta into capsules, I am also offering placenta tinctures at no additional fee!

Placenta tincture is an added bonus in that it can be used in addition to and long after the capsules are gone.  By tincturing a small piece of the placenta in a high grade alcohol, you can increase the length and benefits of your placenta for both mother and child.  The tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition, emotional distress and for mother later in life during menopause and even turned into a homeopathic remedy!

It is recommended to allow the placenta to steep for at least six weeks before use.  The tincture is very shelf-stable if kept in a cool dark place such as a cupboard, and will last for many, many years.

If you are interested in having enough placenta tincture to last the lifetime of mother and child, you can continue to add 80 or 100 proof high grade alcohol (vodka) to the bottle as the tincture is used, never allowing it to get below half full, or even better, 3/4 full.

Dosage instructions:

– 7 drops of tincture can be put in a glass of water and drunk by the mother during times of transition, trauma, hormonal fluctuations, etc. after her placenta pills are gone.  Some women have reported using this placenta tincture to successfully treat the symptoms of postpartum depression, PMS and menopause.
– 3 – 5 drops can be given in water to the child when they are sick, getting sick or in a time of physical or emotional transition.  It can be given to a sibling as well but ideally, each child would have their own placenta tincture.

To make into a homeopathic remedy, take the sample of the strained placenta tincture to your Naturopathic Doctor or Homeopath and ask them to make it into at least 6C potency remedy for you or follow the directions found here to make the remedy yourself.  I have also recently found a homeopathic lab in England who will make individual placenta remedies for people.  If you are interested in that, I can send you their contact info and some general prices.

Once the tincture is diluted down to a homeopathic potency, it will be a constitutional remedy for the baby throughout her/his life. It could be used for many/any constitutional or unusual ailments except when a specific remedy is more appropriate (example: arnica is specific for bruising).  The placenta contains all one’s strengths and weakness so treating the child with this remedy will provide balance when there is imbalance.  It is like their personal reset button.

The 6C remedy could be used to promote general health, boost immunity, strengthen and balance the child. It may be given twice a day for a child who looks run down, pale, or their appetite needs a boost.  It can be given four times a day if the child seems to be coming down with something, has a runny nose or cough, etc.  It can also be taken as needed for times of transition or stress like colic, teething, weaning, separation anxiety, 1st day of school, etc.

For more chronic conditions such as autism, cancer or significant injury, a higher potency like 40C or even up to an M dilution would be necessary.  This would need to be done with the help and oversight of the child’s naturopath.

  1. Just curious, would you need the placenta steamed and dehydrated before making the tincture or would you use the raw placenta?

  4. Hi Sara,
    Just curious about the tincture – do you remove the piece of placenta and strain the tincture after 6 weeks of steeping or do you leave it in?
    Thank you kindly,

  5. Jenn, there are a few different ways of doing it. I recommend to my clients to leave it in and just add a little bit of high grade vodka as its used, never allowing it to get below 3/4 full so that the little bit that you add will be infused by the large amount that is still in the bottle. I was told of this method by a client whose father had been making tinctures for years, this way it will always stay a strong consistency and will last forever.

  8. Hi Sara,

    I am due in Feb and have been looking into making a tincture. Most of the instructions I have read said to blend the placenta before adding the vodka…if your leaving the placenta in the tincture then your not blending the piece of placenta, right?

  11. I’m curious about making a tincture using dehydrated placenta. Seems possible but I can’t find a “how to” when using this method. Can you offer any guidance? Thanks
